The Emperor standing amidst his industrial pollution.

Best buddies. Soviet Premier Leonid Brezhnev and East German President Erich Honecker, mouth-to-mouth kissing.

Bring down geographic, cultural and ethnic barriers.

Not sure what this Turco-Arabic looking piece is supposed to depict or mean? I like the smoke and the dog.

Artwork inspired by Pink Floyd's 'The Wall.'

Multicultural and multi-ethnic art - people of color.

An anti-militarist message of tolerance, freedom and respect.

Contemporary abstract art - Japanese sector of Berlin.

Ray Charles and other celebrities featured in this colorful and intricate mural.

I interpret this mural as meaning - run & hide from the shackles of the church.

hello, sorry to bother you for this futile request. I hope you will answer me ... Actually I write an article about Pink Floyd in my school newspaper and I need a picture to illustrate my article, in the ideal a free rights picture. In seeking photos related to The Wall, I came across your blog and your picture of urban art in Berlin. I love it, could I use it for my article if I may? thank you, Lola.
